Please help - George Aexander Lowrie

I am fairly new to family history but found my great grandparents and started looking back from them My Great Grandfather was George Aexander Lowrie born 15th Nov 1872 at Rock, Northumberland. I found him on the 1881 census with his mother, sister and brother. from the 1871 census I found his father and mother sisters and brother. I worked out his father died between 1871 -1881 and found his death in 1873 - 21st Sept. I found the marriage of John Lowrey and Mary Bell Jures in 1860 .
What puzzles me is on the marriage certificate for George Alexander and Sarah Jane Todd in 1896 George's father is described as "John Lowrie" and occupation a "miller". I thought it would mention Deceased and Miller isn't used on any of the census records as occupation. Agricultural Labourer or Hind is used. I am now worried I am on a wrong track completely but am not sure. Please help.
